There is a small group of people in this town who are not happy unless they are tearing people down to gain what they want. This stems from the local politics in this town. This group was very vocal against the past town supervisor and town board. The people that they support and like are now in office, so they are happy. It opens your eyes to just how vocal and nasty they were when you notice that since the first of the year the town of Thurman is hardly in the papers anymore. HHMMM, I guess there is no need for them to be on their soapbox anymore.
It is however, election time again. There are some people that are running against the ones that are currently on our board and the acting supervisor as well. Once again, they have decided to go after these people. There is nothing they won’t do to try to hurt and ruin the integrity of the ones who are running. They went to another counties town clerk website to look into the past of Susan Shepler, who is running against Cynthia Hyde. They found financial documents and tried to use that against her all because her party line on the ballot for Independent says Financial Stability. I personally do not did find the documents to be damaging. In my eyes, it showed me that Susan Shepler is capable of working through financial issues correctly and moving forward. It gives me more confidence in her qualification for this position. Hell, Mary Eddy is running under an Integrity party line and most people know that is a joke!
What really astonishes me, is the fact that when they do it, it is ok, but when the very same thing is done to them, it is evil. Anyone can do what they did. To prove this, I went on the Warren County and Essex County Clerk’s webpage. You can search public records there. I found many interesting documents on Cynthia Hyde, Kathy Templeton AKA, Kathy Feiden, Mike Eddy, Susan Baker and more. Am I going to publish them here? No, I am not, I am using this as an example though as to how easy it is to find something on people if you want to. What you choose to do with that information is between you, your integrity and God.
There have been others that have publicly stated information that has been found on some of our current town leaders. Kathy Templeton seems to be the highlight right now. I started having doubts about her ethics and honesty back when she held Jackwax funds for 9 months. I heard at least three explanations as to why she did it, she even told the Warren County Sheriff a different one than she had told others. When you tell a lie many times, you tend to forget what you have stated in the past. Now there has been more information put out there. I just saw a post by Kathy Templeton on Facebook, that goes to her personal blog. This is her favorite soapbox. One thing I have noticed is that Kathy plays the victim very well. She never owns up to untruths she has told, or actions she has done in the past. She plays the victim and has a mile-long list of excuses. Kathy has allowed her blog to be the site of articles written either by her, her husband or someone else, that rip the character of people apart. There is never any foundation for this, other than they are mad and having a hissy fit over something, so why not hurt others. You can only hurt others so many times before they strike back. You can’t play the victim when that happens.
Kathy has stated that she is or was a journalist. She of all people then should know, if you are going to go digging into people’s past, you better make sure they don’t have a shovel of their own. You also need to be sure your own shit pile is covered as well.
